Re: AW: HALLO
huhhh, nichts gegen Glauben. Aber die meisten Kriege werden und
wurden genau deswegen geführt, weil man Andersdenkende vom eigenen,
vermeintlich besseren Standpunkt überzeugen will und / oder deren
Güter berauben will.
Von daher möchte ich mein eigenes rationales Bild dieser Welt bitte
behalten. Meinetwegen kommt nach meinem Tod alles andere, aber eine
Lösung liegt nicht im Glauben oder Nichtglauben. Natürlich auch nicht
im Geld und im Luxus, sondern im Miteinander in allen Formen.
